When children are removed from a home because of abuse or neglect, they need a mentor; a friend; a constant in their upturned life. This is where the Guardian ad Litem Program excels. If you want to make a difference in a child's life, consider volunteering for the Guardian ad Litem Program. This program reaches children in the 10th Judicial Circuit, which includes Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties. For more information on how to volunteer, call Diane Schmelz at 863-534-2547, or on their website at BecomeAGuardian.com .To see more videos like this, go to the PGTV webpage at http://www.Polk-County.net/PGTV.
